I have many memories of our brother Joe from racing home from school with Eamon, going to all the dances, to all the weddings and parties we attended. Joe was great company and a pleasure to be with. He was greatly affected by the loss of our Sister Vera and God willing they will be together in heaven. Memories of both will never fade. Our deepest condolences to Geraldine and the family. Love Madeline & George
